Iran Khodro, the country's largest car producer, recently showcased vehicles in the Tajik capital of Dushanbe. The exhibition was held on the sidelines of an international investment conference attended by Tajik President Emomali Rahmon.

IKCO displayed the Dena sedan, Runna small sedan, Soren sedan and the Arisan pickup, being IKCO's latest product.

Addressing the opening ceremony of the investment conference, Rahmon expressed his country’s willingness to develop economic cooperation with foreign companies.

“Big companies from around 35 countries have taken part in the conference and Tajikistan warmly welcomes their presence in the domestic markets,” he said.

IKCO has been exporting a limited number of vehicles to the Persian-speaking Central Asian country. Its Samand remains one of the most popular vehicles to be used as taxis in the Tajik capital.

The company's representatives at the event said they hoped to increase their presence in the Tajik market to fend off the growing competition from low-cost Chinese vehicles.
